Openni compilation error

I'm getting a compilation error when building openni on Ubuntu 10.10:

In file included from openni_camera/src/openni_driver.cpp:43: openni_camera/include/openni_camera/openni.h:45: fatal error: Eigen/Core: No such file or directory

I'm using the version checked out from git with an svn installation of ROS. Presumably there's some library that I'm missing.

The solution I found was to install the diamondback version of ROS.

Only then could I get openni to compile as per the instructions.

You are missing the Eigen package. There are instructions on how to install openni on the ni wiki page

I've followed the instructions, but still end up with the same compile error. Do I need to install Eigen separately?
